Who Gossips More?

Update: Click HERE to view results

I was just having a discussion with a couple of co-workers and I being the troublemaker that I am said to my two male coworkers, “I don’t ever want to hear you say women gossip more.” Now, I knew that statement would start a lively discussion and I said it anyway. 😈 Ain’t I a stinker?

I know this question has probably been around since there were at least two women and two men on the planet. Now that there are billions of men and women, I’m just wondering what folks around the world think. Not just Cosmopolitan readers think.

This is by no means meant to be a scientific.

WARNING! You may not want to answer in the company of the opposite sex.

  1. Hmmm. I do not believe one sex gossips more than the other. I would not necessarily say that both sexes gossip equally either…I just believe that certain people gossip more than others. Both men and women enjoy it. So I suppose I do agree that it should not be said that women gossip more. But I do not believe it should be said that men gossip more either. Does that make sense? 🙂


  2. In the hope I’m not ostracized by my own sex, I think the men have this one. I’ve worked within teams of men and women and in my experience, the women gossiped more, though it depends on your definition. I’m thinking in terms of what their friends are doing, or who is in a relationship with whom – men usually don’t care about that stuff, but turn the subject to other things. That’s not to say they don’t secretly read women’s magazines and have an opinion! It’s all in the semantics I suppose 🙂


  3. I hope you’ll make a follow-up post on the results of your poll!
    I’m not sure about gossiping as an activity precisely, BUT: my husband reads gossipy magazines online (I rarely do, if ever) and he’s the one who’s curious about what the neighbours are up (I couldn’t care less, no matter that they’re fighting noisily).
    So I do think that you have a strong point here.


Speak your peace . . .
